With the recruiting dead period for high school seniors in place until Jan. 13, Florida is taking advantage of the Jan. 4-8 window that transfer players are allowed to make official visits. On Thursday, Miami offensive lineman John Campbell will be on campus for an official visit with the Gators, according to 247Sports.
The visit is planned through Friday, but this won’t be Campbell’s first chance to check out the Swamp. He made several trips to UF during his high school recruitment but never made it to Gainesville for an official visit before committing to Miami. He played in 34 games for the Hurricanes in total, including 18 starts.
With both of Florida’s starting tackles in 2022 moving on from the program, Campbell could find himself starting at left tackle for Florida if he transfers. Richard Gouraige is off to the NFL and Michael Tarquin is in the transfer portal, leaving Austin Barber as the lone experienced option on the team.
The Gators have already brought in a handful of transfers and expect to stay busy through the cycle. So far, Florida has added Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz, Ohio State linebacker Teradja Mitchell, Memphis defensive lineman CamRon Jackson and Louisville defensive lineman Caleb Banks.
